Rumor: Apple Developing 14.1-inch iPad Pro with M2 chip

According to an analyst from Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), Apple is rumored to be developing a 14.1-inch mini LED display iPad Pro model with an M2 chipset. The tablet is set to be released in early 2023.

On Thursday, DSCC’s Robert Young said that his supply chain sources had informed him of a 14.1-inch iPad Pro in development. According to the report, the upcoming iPad Pro model will come with Face ID, mini LED backlighting, and ProMotion. Young cannot confirm when the device will be available in the market, but he said that it is likely that it will come out in early 2023.

There was a previous report from Majin Bu which mentioned the new 14.1-inch iPad M2. According to him, the tablet will come with 512GB and 16GB of base memory and will launch alongside the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models. The 12.9-inch tablet has slimmed-down bezels around its screen making it look more attractive than ever before, while the 11-inch model has no major change.

The Bloomberg article from June 2021 reported that Apple wanted to release a larger-screen iPad. With the 2 new reports from Majin Bu and Young, we know more information about the 14-inch display size specifically.

When it comes to reporting Apple-related display information, Young has a strong track record. However, there’s a lot of hype over the recent leaks from Bu’s track record is mostly hit-or-miss. But he appears to have given correct information about Apple’s Stage Manager before WWDC 2022.

Many will love the new iPad Pro if it comes with an M2 chip because the current M1 iPad Pro is so powerful that it can easily outperform many old MacBooks. The new chipset will make the upcoming iPad even more powerful than it already is.
